Elon Musk Stares At The Sun

Tesla CEO Elon Musk may have taken a big risk watching the eclipse on Monday. Musk said via Twitter that he watched the solar eclipse wearing sunglasses through the glass roof of his Tesla Model S. It's not clear whether Musk meant eclipse sunglasses or actual sunglasses, but if it's the latter, he could have done some serious damage to his eyes.

Check out the full list of eyewear that is safe to wear during an eclipse here.
